    Description

    Whisper Fen Holds Dark Secrets 

    As the mists roll over the fens and enigmatic lights twinkle in the distance, only the locals know their way along the hidden paths through the mysterious watery terrain of one of England's most beautiful and sometimes dangerous places. 

    Detective Matt Ballard may have retired but there's still plenty going on in the fens to keep him busy. 

    Someone trashes an old lady's garden and daubs her isolated cottage with hateful graffiti. Emilia Swain seems to be totally harmless, so why is she being targeted? 

    Matt's best friend Will and his wife Kate moved to Holland House to put their past behind them. But Kate's mental state is deteriorating and she's obsessed with the tragic history of the house and an old doll she finds in the garden.

    And why is Kate suddenly friends with a loner who haunts the fens? Has the dreadful past come back to haunt the present owners?

    Former detectives Matt and Liz want to help their friends and neighbors. But how can you help people who don't want to be helped?

    I love Joy Ellis but this was disappointing

    This is nothing like her other books. There is no mystery here, no drama, just some neighbors who need help and two retired detectives. Listening to the tale of the mentally ill woman declining is just very sad. The story really goes nowhere.

    Not Like Joy Ellis

    The books of Joy Ellis are usually well developed and very interesting. This one was just flat out strange and hard to believe. It’s like it was written by someone else. The narrator is excellent, but the story is very odd. It’s a stretch.

    Not one of Joy Ellis’ best stories.

    I normally enjoy all of Joy’s different series but this storyline was too drawn out and not her usual style of course detective mystery . I persisted cause I wanted to see how it ended but it was not as interesting as her previous books.

    it's as bad as reviews show

    Sometimes I wonder, "how bad can it be? when one of my favorite authors release a book and the reviews are not so great. Turns out, it can be pretty bad. This particular book was an all around waste of time. It's agonizingly slow and the ending doesn't make up for the lack of plot. I can get my credit back but I certainly can't get those hours of listening back

    Good, but a few annoying details

    I like Joy Ellis overall, but I had a hard time accepting that all of these folks went along for so long with NOT getting a very sick woman professional help — especially two mental health professionals. The other thing was when help was sought all of this FREE private mental health services - like right, that happens.

    Very distressing. Poor quality for this author.

    I feel like every storyline in this book left you feeling hopeless. Every professional let all of the characters they were supposed to help down. All I could say at the end was, "are you kidding me!" Joy Ellis has let me down with this one.

    Disappointed

    I have read most of the books of Joy Ellis. I liked the balance of police procedural and relational stories among the characters. This one disappointed me because of the overwrought emotional tone and ending. It is playing to sensationalism. It sounds like typical American TV. I may not return to the Fens.

    Please don't read this

    Terribly depressing. I'm so disappointed when usually this is my favorite author. There is nothing redeeming i doubt she even wrote it. The narrator did his best but the content is awful. It doesn't ever get better
